Earth is 2!

September 18, 2017

Happy Birthday, Earth!  Our unexpected, and unexpectedly male, last child is rambunctiously, energetically, terribly, joyfully two years old.
  Earth started the day early- this picture was taken at 5:30am, hence D's bleary eyes.  He helped D walk the dog and then we got all got ready for church

Decorating for Fall

September 15, 2017

 Just like last year, maybe if I decorate for fall, it'll start feeling like fall?  It may have worked because it looks like we're done with 100 degree days for the year.  I'm sure 95 doesn't sound that cool to you but those five degrees make a big difference here and pretty soon, it'll be cool enough that we can open up the house at night.  It's almost my favorite time of year here and I can't wait!
  I added some decorations out front this year; not much just a sweet door sign and some sunflowers but I think it cheers things up a bit

Just a Regular Day

September 13, 2017

Wow, it's been a long time since I've done a "regular day" post!  I think this was my last one and that was in May of last year.  Things have definitely changed since then so here's what a regular day looks like now:

Sky and Fire put on their uniforms for school and we did the usual morning stuff before heading out to the bus stop

We Have a Reader!

   I couldn't find Sky on the playground after school yesterday and when I did, my heart just about burst with happiness
It was just like seeing myself 30 years ago: hiding away on a playground and lost in a book
